From a tattoo on the horse's lip, the SPCA was able to identify it as "Moon's Treasure." The horse's last race was at Calder Race Course in Miami Gardens on Jul. 8, 2011.

I love animals, don't get me wrong. My spouse has had a horse, and we've had, at various times, birds and fish and cats and dogs in the house.

What I find appalling is the local media's constant obsession with stories like this, but their absolute refusal to cover the reality of human death via abortion. Miami had an abortion clinic shut down in recent years because of suspected MURDER of babies who survived the barbaric procedure. No one in the media cared.

The racing industry insists that their animals are treated well. Stories like this one show that to be a lie. Racing animals are treated with all the care of maintaining slot machines.
